Nearby AVA Walks
Texas is a BIG state. If you hit the traffic just right, we’re about 3 hours from Houston, 4 1/2 hours from Dallas and it will take you a good 8 hours to drive to El Paso.
Still, there are plenty of AVA sanctioned walks that are within an hour or two of San Antonio. Most of them are in small towns, which will give you the flavor of a different kind of Texas.
The links will take you to the walk page on the AVA site. The events are listed by city according to their distance from the event hotel. Come walk with us in Texas!
